Beef Enchiladas

First off, I doubled this recipe immediately... Who has 1/2 pound of meat laying around? Not this house! So, I doubled the recipe and then used flour tortillas instead of corn tortillas. Not a big fan of the corn tortillas. So, I am sure that this changed the points value, but it also made them delicious! :) We were good to go with 1 enchilada instead of the 2, so it all evened out in the end... Our family were big fans of this recipe and I will definitely be making them again. I like that I have lots of leftovers or another pan to throw in the freezer!

Beef Enchiladas
(recipe found on pinterest via

1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup red peppers, chopped
1/2 cup green peppers, chopped
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 tablespoon italian dressing
8 corn tortillas

Preheat oven to 400. Brown meat and peppers in large pan. Stir in 1 cup salsa and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Spread 1/4 cup remaining salsa on bottom of 9x13 pan. Brush dressing over both sides of tortillas and then spoon 1/3 cup meat mixture onto tortilla and roll up. Place into pan seam side down. Top with remaining salsa and cover. Bake 20 minutes covered and then remove covering, add remaining cheese and bake for 2-3 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

Serves: 4
Points: 8 points + for 2 enchiladas
